Students in Liberia Doing Homework at Night

Rural Liberia has no electrical grid. Yet these students, for the first time, have access to light. Maryland Branch has pledged to raise $10,000 to purchase solar Luci Lights and send them to Liberia and South Sudan. The Luci Light allows hospitals, health clinics and businesses to stay open past midnight. It allows school children to read, study and play longer. These lights are charged out in the sun during the day and can last 24 hours on a single charge. A donation of $10 buys a Luci Light and for every light purchased, the company, Mpowerd, will also donate one to be sent to these desperately poor areas. We’re grateful for this partnership of compassion and generosity.  If you would like to contribute toward this need, please write Luci Lights in the comment box of the Donate page.
